Blockstack: The Blockstack Browser has been Updated…


Welcome to the Stack CafeTM — Blockstack: The Blockstack Browser has been Updated…  The latest iteration of the Blockstack Browser adds three new decentralized applications for use in the Blockstack ecosystem. 

The latest applications to be added to the Blockstack Browser and Blockstack ecosystem include:

  1. Hermes (a decentralized, encrypted chat app)
  2. Stealthy (a decentralized, end to end encrypted, p2p chat and video application), and
  3. DotPodcast (search, subscribe, and pay podcasters without being tracked or censored). 

This is just a quick glimpse related to update for the Blockstack browser and a brief overview of each new application will be forthcoming.  And, don’t forget that you need to use the Blockstack Browser when you access these applications in order to avail yourself to the all of the wonderful benefits the new decentralized Blockstack internet offers.

Blockstack has welcomed two communication/messaging applications and a podcast platform to its ecosystem.  Go open your Blockstack Browser and give the new applications a try.  And, stay tuned for a little more information on the new applications in subsequent posts.


Don’t forget – Blockstack appears to have not only taken the browser to the next level by making it better, more powerful and simpler, but it has also given the user more control over the internet experience.  When the Blockstack Browser is coupled with Blockstack’s ecosystem , it allows the user to control how they use and interact with the internet. For instance, some of the items that the Blockstack Browser gives the user control over include:

  • the user’s information/data/identity
  • the storage/portability of user’s information/data
  • access to the user’s information/data
  • encryption of the user’s information/data.

The bottom line is that the blockstack browser allows the user to control many more things than the other browsers when those browsers are used on the traditional internet.

Along with being, not only the window – main portal or access point – into the Blockstack internet, the Blockstack Browser is a one stop shop tool to help the user control the user’s identity, wallet and all settings (guide for browser) that the user may need to make the new internet experience very powerful, simple and enjoyable.


Note: If you do not have the Blockstack browser, please see this link (note – to enable the full functionality of any dApp built for the Blockstack ecosystem (e.g., building a new internet, a decentralized internet, and re-decentralizing the internet) you need to use the Blockstack browser).
